Someone’s gotta go!

Staff at companies in Holland that are struggling due to the current financial crisis will soon be able to choose which colleague should be fired thanks to a new reality show from the Dutch-based creator of the hit TV series Big Brother.

In each episode of the new show Someone’s Gotta Go, developed by production company Endemol, workers at a struggling business will choose who should get a salary cut or raise and who should be fired.

A spokesman for Endemol said: “It will be an interesting experiment to reverse the power roles.”

The format of this new show has been sold to Fox Television in the US and they hope to broadcast it in other countries.
